We have started building the swimming pool and gym!
Alderney Community Sports Centre, a locally registered charity, is building a 25m long 3 lane indoor heated swimming pool with a gymnasium at the site of the old outdoor shallow pool at St Anne's School. The 3 lane pool will be 0.9m depth at the shallow end and 1.5m at the deep end, conforming to BSA requirements.
The gym will hold at least 6 modern machines and free weights.
Thanks to the 1152 residents and visitors who signed our petition, the Alderney States Members have agreed to put up £250,000 of matched funding towards this project.
With all the generous contributions and offers of cash, materials and services totalling over £556,000, we have now started building. We are aiming at another £19,000 to provide equipment such as disabled facilities, additional storage, better car parking and improve the structure with more solar panels and better insulation to reduce running costs. This is the link to the business plan ~ we welcome all comments and suggestions
The facility will be open every day to all the community, the school, those with special needs, visitors and clubs. The school will have priority during school hours.
Our fundraising team is now busy gathering the final money needed to make this project a reality. If you believe that a pool and gym are essential for our island, please contact the team and give generously in money, materials and labour. See details on the sponsorship opportunities page .
